The Capital Area Dental Society is the local component of TDA, which is the state association affiliated with the ADA (American Dental Association.) We support members in the greater Austin area. If members attend all our monthly general meetings, they will fulfill the CE hours they need for TSBDE renewal. CADS is primarily supported by dues paying members. For our events, we often have sponsors, which have included: local dental supply companies, supporters of dental practices (e.g. financial advisors, real estate specialists, a lawyer, a metal collection specialists, a handpiece repair team.) We invite new dentists to participate in our new dentist committee, which includes meet-ups, and fun events. Camaraderie and professional development are at the heart of our mission to the dental community.
We have a proud history of organizing special events with our charitable foundation, CADF, which offers free care and support for the less fortunate. We have connected our members together with a Study Club, and support dentists and healthcare initiatives at the legislature, DenPac at the Texas state level, and ADPac at the national US level.
